Texas commercial fisher-woman Diane Wilson, one of the founders of protest group Code Pink, was arrested on June 9th for interrupting a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing on the Gulf oil spill. Wilson doused herself with a jar of syrup, meant to look like oil, in protest of Senator Lisa Murkowski's blocking of a bill that would lift the maximum amount of money BP is responsible for allocating toward reparations of the oil spill.
